Design and development process

It's important that the design and development process is flexible enough to meet your specific needs. The following guide gives you a rough indication of the development steps typically involved.

Discovery

We ask you to complete the website design questionnaire and email it back to us. Alternatively, if you have one, you provide us with your detailed website design brief and any specific requirements.

Quote and Proposal

We supply you with a detailed quote based on the information and website requirements you have submitted to-date. If you feel the quote is acceptable we follow up with a comprehensive website design proposal.

Step 2: Quote and Proposal
Planning

Site Planning/Mapping

An initial meeting takes place. We discuss your target audience, site-branding and clarify your message. We work on creating a detailed website map, discuss functionality, accessibility, usability and plan a coherent SEO strategy.

Visual Design / Compositions

We create a set of bespoke static layouts (desktop and Mobile) depicting the look and feel of your website. Revision and changes take place based on target audience specific feedback. After final approval the layouts are signed off.

Step 4: Visuals and Composition
Coding and Server Side Work

Coding and Server Side Work

The static layouts are converted into working HTML templates. Server side work commences including installation of the CMS. The CMS is configured to reflect your specific requirements and website templates are incorporated into the CMS. The website structure is created mirroring the website map.

We add your final content to your website via the CMS. A CMS training session is arranged so you can update / manage your website independently. After rigorous checks the website is launched.
